Interior Windows

When we bought our house, one of the things we loved was how the previous owners "bumped out" the back of our house. In doing so, the master bedroom doubled in size. However, instead of making it one large room, it is two small rooms with a doorway where the window was.

Anyway, the "bumped out" part of the room faces east and gets the best light. Unfortunately, the original bedroom space is now windowless and stays pretty dark.

Last June I was at a Funky Junk Sisters' show and found a pair of salvaged windows. I know immediately where I wanted to put them.

With the promise of some baked goods, Joj and Jim installed the windows on each side of the opening. I LOVE them. They let in light and really connect the two spaces.

Sweet Sammie

Yesterday was Sammie's 7th birthday. Hard to believe. She is growing up so fast. Last night after all the presents were opened my brother made the comment on how "grown up" her presents were. No stuffed animals this year. Instead she got a CD player, a new sleeping bag, a bikini, lip gloss and a little cash. She was thrilled and capped off the night with tons of butter cream frosting.

Pantry Chalkboard

A while back I painted my pantry doors with chalkboard paint and I LOVE them!! Seriously, this was a pretty quick and easy project and we use it ALL the time. It usually has that running list of things we need to get and from time to time a little artwork courtesy of the the kiddos.

I'm linking this to the Nester. So bop on over and check out some other great ideas.
Thanks for stopping by
